Side on shot looks very similar to the old Lincoln Continental - expcept that had a round shape rear quarter window.
Wonder if that Cougar still runs? and what it sounds like - as love the sound of a V8.

Is it just in storage? Seems a shame, could be a nice project for someone, bet there isn't many around as they are imports and ancient!

Nice, going by the badge on the boot i'd say it was an XR-7, i'm not so sure on the other dubious badgework though ;), probably polish up quite good, make a real PIMP WAGON ......cue '70s disco music

Yeh, Yeh, well I like the sound of both, but ya gotta admit when a V8 strikes up and you give the loud pedal a blast...it kinda makes you want to wet your pants with excitement! :LOL::LOL::LOL:
